The tragic events surrounding the death of Sacramento resident Stephon Clark has the spotlight on police brutality yet again. Protesters and activists have rallied against the slaying of another African-American male that has seemed to become the new normal in cities all across the country.

He also was a member of the Southeastern Conference championship teams in 2006 and 2009. Not only did he break records in his own right as a member of LSU basketball but his father was the first African-American player for the university.
